Gottschedstraße

Gottschedstraße in Zentrum-West is one of Leipzig’s top dining and nightlife areas and is favoured by a slightly older and more well-off crowd. Although late-opening bars like Jamboree Best of Nightlife and Madrigal, and the full-on nightclub Club Twenty-One, do attract a younger more party-animal scene.

In a way, Gottschedstraße is a bit like a larger version of Münzgasse because everything is within a relatively small area (basically one small street). However, Gottschedstraße has a far broader selection of entertainment, eating, drinking, as well as accommodation options, and there’s always something open night or day here.

Places do tend to open and close and re-invent themselves on a regular basis. Nevertheless there’s several long-time favourites on the Gottschedstraße scene. For dining, L’italiano Vero (Italian), An Nam (Vietnamese), Barcelona (tapas), Sol y Mar (modern fusion), and Chang (Thai) are popular spots. For great value sushi at lunchtime we like Inside Asia.

There’s a lively evening and weekend café scene centred mostly around the long-standing and very popular Luise at the corner of Gottschedstraße and Bosestraße.

Gottschedstraße also has a happening nightlife with probably Leipzig’s highest concentration of nightclubs in one location. Night Fever and Club Twenty-One are within a stone’s throw of each other. Party animals and night owls will definitely want to check these out.

Gottschedstraße can be reached by trams 1 and 14 (Gottschedstraße stop) or tram 9 (Thomaskirche stop) and is a short walk from the Zentrum. Taxis are usually not a problem, though you might have to wait a bit late at night. Parking can sometimes be tight in the immediate vicinity. If you can’t find on-street parking there’s a city-run public parking garage on Zentralstraße.
